Forum Issues

Post by Winmoz » Sun Sep 25, 2022 2:03 pm

Folks,

As you may have noticed, we had some issues with the forum this week. In order to fix the gremlins and patch the grommets, we had to roll the forum boards back by 7 days. That means that if you have joined, posted, commented, or what have you, those changes have been sacrificed on the altar of my sanity.

Apologies for any lost posts and the inconvenience this may cause, but as far as the forum is concerned, last week didn't happen.

If you have recently joined (between the 18th and the 25th) please do let us know and we will make sure that you are fully onboarded.

Thanks all.

Do our forum server hosts only provide weekly backups?

No, I now have a manual task to go in and run it. There is a cronjob that should do it, but it keeps failing on me.

The forum seems to have issues fairly frequently because of the server/hosting.

It it's of any use I can host it on one of our company dedicated servers for free that are quite powerful and have continuous backup as well as remote daily/weekly/monthly backups.

Usually because the server or client has dropped your logon profile and you need to log back in again.
